We do it, but it's a personal preference.   I always ask the kids and it seems to help them, so I usually end up doing it.

Welcome Ashley! If counting down makes you fell better then go for it. If not try to keep busy and not focus on it.

hi, it all depends on you. I personally don't count down the days because it makes them fell longer; but I also do have a countdown calendar on my computer that I randomly check and love to see the number go down :)  Since I have 2 kiddos (1 1/2 and 3 1/2) I draw the numbers 1-10 on paper and have them color each of the pages, then I tape them to the wall...every night before bed I have them pull down a number and let them know "so many days before daddy comes home"...I didn't think they would get it, but to my surprise they did, and they loved it :)  I am planning to do the same this time around since we are on a back to back deployment...good luck!
